Psychotic behavior may be associated with bipolar disorder which in turn may occur more often in people with MS than in people without MS. Similarities between bipolar disorder and MS include age of onset, fluctuating nature of symptoms and white matter abnormalities, especially in the temporal lobes. As with all psychiatric symptoms in MS it is important to exclude drug effects. For instance manic behavior is fairly common with steroid treatments.
